For the purposes of clarification, an unlisted ginger beer is one that has not been featured in Ethleen's Book, an unpictured bottle is one which has been listed and discussed in the book but which was not photographed.

A South African ginger beer will, by definition, be a bottle specifically manufactured for a South African factory / bottler and if not bearing the name of a South African town or city, one which can clearly be traced to such.

Minor variations in size, shape, potter, logo or colouring will not qualify a bottle for new discovery status.
